Tarini Shankar Ghosh on the human gut microbiome and next-generation therapeutic products

On 5 March 2024, the NCCR Microbiomes Seminar Series is pleased to host Tarini Shankar Ghosh, Professor in the Department of Computational Biology at the Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology Delhi, India.

Prof. Ghosh, who heads the Microbiome Informatics Lab, studies the assembly and stability of the human microbiome as well as the causes for inter-personal variations, using a combination of multi-omics, machine learning, and statistical learning approaches. These data-driven techniques aim at the identification of biomarkers of health and disease, and how they correlate with environmental and genetic factors, with the ultimate goal to develop personalized microbiome-targeted interventions in healthcare.

Before joining the IIIT Delhi in 2022, Tarini Shankar Ghosh pursued his research at the University of Hyderabad, at the Genome Institute of Singapore and at the APC Microbiome Ireland at Cork. He received the Yakult Young Investigator Award in 2014 and the Torrent ISHR Young Investigator Award in 2017.

Tarini Shankar Ghoshwill give a talk entitled ‘Introducing the Health-Associated Core Keystone (HACK) Index:  A global ranking score of gut microbial taxa for selection of next-generation probiotics and biotherapeutics’. The seminar will take place on 5 March 2024, from 12h00 to 13h00 CET. You can access this public seminar through this Zoom link.
